This particular episode is the first episode. This one is definitely worth the watch.
It seems to have only been on for one season of 26 shows. I wish there were a lot more on here to watch. I don't know why my family never watched this when I was gorwing up. We certainly watched "Perry Mason" every week.

This show was good. Phil Carey gave a nice portrayal of Marlowe. Carey does not over play the cynical part of this character. He plays the role as "rather glum" as one reviewer states, because Marlowe was written by Chandler as a cynical and no nonsense character.
Most of the "hard boiled detectives" of the era that gave us Marlowe, Spade, Johnny Dollar, Pat Novak seem to be a man's secret fantasy of being a private eye. He can take a beating and bounce back, he knows how and when to handle a gun, and there are cases that he refuses to take because of his particular ethos. And, while they enjoy the company of a beautiful woman, they will never be lead around by the nose by one and can even dish out a little slap or shove when she needs to be put in her place. They have seen too much dirt, looked at too much pain and heard too many excuses...

I do not recall previously seeing the television version of Phillip Marlowe. This was a fairly interesting drama with decent acting by the main and supporting actors.

Phil Carey makes a stalwart (if rather glum) Marlowe but it's great to see a young Barbara Bain in her pre-"Mission: Impossible" days.
